UCC utilizes multiple measures for recent High School (HS) and GED graduates, by using HS grades and your state assessment scores or your GED test scores if above 165. Placement tests are available for reading, writing, and math. The first testing attempt is free. Testing Services has appointments and access to preparation materials. Visit Testing Services.
Transferring to UCC? If you are transferring from a college/university, submit your official transcripts for evaluation.
The UCC Financial Aid website has information on federal financial aid, scholarships, Veteran benefits, and work-study. It is important to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can also earn a tuition waiver if you get involved in certain student activities, like Associated Students of UCC, the Student Newspaper, UCC music groups, or Peer Mentors.
